Skeleton Pudding Cups

I’m happy to report that I got most of the Halloween decor up this week. You may think I’m crazy, but it’s all good. As a blogger, (and this is my excuse) I have to be working a little ahead of schedule so that I can be sharing some great ideas with you before the holidays actually hit. 😉

I warned you I had Halloween on the brain a few weeks ago and wanted to share with you another fun Halloween Treat idea today. These ones are Skeleton Pudding Cups. They can be served for a Family Home Evening treat, a party dessert or just for fun. We made ours Monday for a FHE treat and the kids LOVED them. They thought they were so fun, and I have to agree. They are perfect for Halloween.

These bad boys only took a few minutes to throw together. I LOVE how they turned out. They’re spooky, festive and yummy too! If you or your kids like pudding and Halloween, then I think you’ll like these Skeleton Oreo Pudding Cups too. :)

They were inspired by this Skeleton Garland I found at our local Dollar Tree. There are 4 on there making them .25 each.

I cut off each skeleton and let them soak in some hot water and soap first. Then I have them a good scrub to make sure they were nice and clean. From there, I bent them at their joints (don’t use too much force so the limbs actually fall off).

I then propped them on these clear plastic cups I found in the paper goods section at Walmart.

I took out my little Skeleton friend for a bit and crushed up some Oreos. I used the Halloween Oreos (orange filling) but you can use any (The Chocolate filled would work great too!). I scooped a few tablespoons into the bottom of each cup. Then I made Chocolate pudding as directed on the box.

NOTE: 1 Large Chocolate Instant Pudding Box was perfect for 4 cups.

Then I plopped my skeleton friend in, filled it with a little more pudding and crushed Oreos.

I thought a Mallow Pumpkin would be the perfect touch to add.

LOVE this! Skeleton Oreo Pudding Cups

          Texas is good… not as good as AZ but still nice. 😉 I sure miss my family though… it’s been harder than I though being away from them. :( We are coming back in December though so I’m super excited. Our next TGA is Dec. 13th… hope to see you there! XO

    Love it!! I think it would also look good to stick a Milano cookie in with RIP written on it, like it was a tombstone : )
